Streets of Kure

The Kure district of Nakatosa Town, known as a base for the pole-and-line fishing of bonito, has benefited for more than 400 years from the fish, which is the gift of the warm Black Current flowing north off Japan’s Pacific coast. The district has also grown as a hub for the distribution of lumber from areas along the Shimanto River since more than 700 years ago. In 2011, the townscape of Kure, which retains vestiges of these local businesses, became Japan’s first fishing town to be designated by the national government as a cultural property (important cultural landscape). Why don’t you take a walk around the port town when you visit there?
